The North-Western Fells of the Lake Distrct rise to the west of Keswick and Derwent Water, bound by Honister Pass, Buttermere and Crummock Water in the south, stretching north to Cockermouth and Bassenthwaite Lake. 29 fells are described in this guide, with route variations ensuring that there's potential for walkers of any ability, so that the North-Western fells may be enjoyed to their full.

What sort of walking awaits? The North-Western fells feature endless ridges that roam over peak after peak. There are grassy summit sprawls of Sail, Greystones and Lord's Seat. Rugged crags on Causey Pike, High Spy and Hopegill Head and the family favourites of Catbells and Castle Crag. 

The North-Western Fells is part of the eight-volume Lakeland Fellranger series by Mark Richards. Fellrangers mix the perfect balance of inspiration and information as they provide a comprehensive guide to the fells of the English Lake District. In every book, a dedicated chapter covers each fell, with a variety of routes, both time-honoured and undiscovered depicted on Harvey maps. The author's own topos and summit panoramas, not to mention breathtaking photography, enhance the reader's journey, and make sure that any trip to the North-Western Fells with a Fellranger in hand is one to remember. 

  • A waterproof PVC cover and ribbon bookmark make this Lakeland Fellranger guide a handy companion in the hills.
  • Every route is illustrated with HARVEY maps, colour photographs, fellscape diagrams and panorama guides.
  • A walk and a fell for everyone - with alternative routes, height distance and timing information to tailor-make your ranging.

The North-Western Fells is just one guide of the eight-part Lakeland Fellranger series, covering a total of 227 fells. Where will you go next?

  • Activities
    walking and (occasional optional) scrambling
  • Seasons
    Suitable all-year round, but winter walking, even on the lower fells, is not for the inexperienced or under-equipped.
  • Centres
    Keswick, Grange-in-Borrowdale, Rosthwaite, Seatoller, Buttermere, High Lorton, Cockermouth, Braithwaite and Stair
  • Difficulty
    Straightforward, short ascents, often not on clear paths, to be used as a basis for readers' own circuits. Navigational skills needed but no specialist equipment. Any scrambling is easy and non-scrambling options are always provided.
  • Must See
    Borrowdale, Buttermere and Bassenthwaite; Captivating Catbells, mighty Grasmoor, enticing Causey Pike and invigorating Grisedale Pike, handsome Hindscarth and bold Robinson; a succession of fine airy ridges and craggy little heights
